Agricultural diversification is an important mechanism for economic growth. With the globalization of markets, diversification of agriculture has as result the increasing crop productivity in terms of quality, quantity and monetary value.
The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of Romanian agriculture in terms of diversifying production. Based on the National Statistics Institute, it analyzes the dynamics of vegetable and animal sector in terms of cultivated areas, livestock, the total and average production obtained.
Romanian agriculture is at a disadvantage due to excessive fragmentation of ownership, low use of agricultural land through cultivation or weak endowment with agricultural machinery and lack of organization.
We conclude that agriculture as a whole, had not a positive development. Fluctuations in the main indicators of production are the consequences of the long transition period and of the incoherent policies on agriculture in general and to each sector, in particular.
For livestock holdings, the breeding sector is the most important and the level of breeding technical indicators is the path to profit or loss. It can be said that in animal husbandry, this is the sector with the highest degree of technicality and that is why there were made efforts in research to create modern techniques that allow the man to control all these phenomena and the level of indicators to not depend only on the capabilities of the bull, boar, ram and rooster, etc.
The aim of this paper is to provide a view upon the use of breeding biotechnologies in Romanian livestock. Based on the data of National Agency for Improvement and Reproduction in Animal Husbandry were analyzed the dynamics of artificial insemination, in species of livestock contained in Official Control of Production (COP). The dynamics of embryo transfer in cattle, in Romania, in the period 2000-2012 is based on data reported by the Romanian Association of Embryo Transfer (A.R.E.T.) to the European Association of Embryo Transfer (A.E.T.E.).
Although until 1990 agricultural research and the system of state enterprises favored the application of these biotechnologies, after 1990, the highly divided property in agriculture and the lack of organization of farmers in associative forms resulted in the restricted use of these modern techniques.
Regarding the use A.I., in the analyzed period, the total number of A.I. decreased by 55%, due to the changes that have occurred since 1990, with the restructuring that occurred in livestock (reducing the number of large farms and the continue decline of the number of females) and in the national network of breeding and selection of animals.
In Romania, due to high costs, embryo transfer is not a method currently used and accessible to ordinary farmers, being used mostly to obtain the bulls used in artificial insemination network or the cows as steers mothers.
Influence of Prunus spinosa L. shrub on the grassland vegetation in western Romania
Prunus spinosa L. is a shrub species that is leading the permanent grassland to the shrubland successional phase. This species has a great occurrence in western Romania and is difficult to control it because it has a great ability of vegetative spreading from roots. The massive presence of this species in some grassland is due mainly to the abandonment and to the diminishing of the livestock. The vegetation was analysed with the linear point-quadrat method. This work has in view to analyse the influence of this species on some vegetation parameters as species richness, number of grasses, legumes and other species, contribution of grasses, legumes and other species, biodiversity indexes (Shannon - H' and Simpson - D and pastoral value VP.

Assessing the factors limiting the Rosa gallica L. shrub occurrence in Romanian grasslands (case study)
The purpose of this work is to show how are influencing different fertilisation types and years of utilisation on the occurrence of the species Rosa gallica L. (French rose) in the analysed grassland. Other aspects analysed here are its interrelation with different parameters of the vegetation as botanical composition, biodiversity and pastoral value. The vegetation data were collected using the linear point-quadrate method. The analysed permanent grassland has a relatively constant contribution of the species R. gallica L. in the vegetation sward. The grassland where it was developed this study was dominated by Festuca valesiaca Schleich. ex Gaudin and Filipendula vulgaris Moench., other species with important contributions being Achillea millefolium L., Plantago lanceolata L. and R. gallica L. The fertilisation and harvesting of the biomass hasn't influenced the contribution of R. gallica L. during the six years of researches.
